Wallbox with Dynamic Load Balancing: Charge with Peace of Mind

Last updated: May 23, 2023

If you are our frequent blog reader, you already know what dynamic load balancing is. You haven’t read about it yet? Then, we will explain it to you briefly. 

When you charge your electric car and use various house appliances at the same time, all these processes may draw more power from your grid than it’s capable of giving. The same happens when several cars are charging from the same power grid simultaneously. 

Dynamic load balancing is meant to prevent load peaks (i.e. excessive electricity consumption) and, thus, avoid power outages. As you see, it’s not rocket science. But what kind of wallboxes offer dynamic load balancing and what exactly can you do with it? 

You’re about to find out. 

Wallbox with Dynamic Load Balancing

Wallboxes perform dynamic load balancing in different ways. In this article, we will show you how you can benefit from dynamic load balancing with our wallboxes, the go-e Charger Gemini and the go-e Charger Gemini flex.

The go-e Charger Gemini (flex) and the go-e Controller

You can easily optimise your charging experience with the help of our dream team: the go-e Charger and go-e Controller. By utilising dynamic load balancing, you can efficiently manage your charging needs without any hassle.

These two have individual functions which they perform together to balance the power load in your house. 

Not only does the go-e Charger transfer electricity from the grid to your car battery but as a smart wallbox, it also brings a plethora of convenient features to the table. For example, it allows charging with flexible electricity tariffs. The charger monitors electricity price fluctuations and charges when electricity is cheapest.

But what is the role of the go-e Controller? Simple. This device is an energy management system (EMS) that takes EV charging to a whole new level.

Installed in the fuse box, the Controller keeps track of the power output from your home's grid and sends that info to the charger. That’s how the charger knows how much power is safe to send to your electric car's battery. On top of that, it seamlessly switches between 1- and 3-phase charging depending on the power available, all while communicating with the wallbox to ensure a perfectly safe and effortless charging experience for you. 

All you need to do is to get the go-e Controller installed by an electrician, connect it to your WiFi or Ethernet and set it up. 

For dynamic load balancing, specify the maximum power output your grid can handle in the go-e Charger App. Once this is done, you can be sure this limit is never exceeded when charging your electric car. 

In short, the go-e Controller's ability to automatically adjust power flow makes it a must-have device for anyone looking to ensure a smooth and stable electric vehicle charging experience.

What can a Wallbox with Dynamic Load Balancing do?

It is almost impossible to overload the power grid when using regular household appliances, such as a washing machine, refrigerator, boiler, etc. However, when it comes to charging an electric vehicle, the stakes are higher. Even if you use a charging station with a normal charging power (e.g. 11 kW), it’s still significantly more than, for instance, a dishwasher that needs about 1.5 to 2.5 kW to make your plates and cutlery clean after dinner. 

Now, let’s cut to the chase. What does a wallbox with dynamic load balancing do? Its main task is to regulate the charging current depending on how much power can be safely drawn at any given time. And by “safely”, we mean without causing power outages in your house. 

Why do you need a wallbox with dynamic load balancing?

1. Using house appliances and charging your electric vehicle simultaneously

Imagine that you are at home with the washing machine, air conditioner, and water boiler all running simultaneously. In the past, you may have been afraid to start charging your electric vehicle at, say, 11 kW, thinking it would be too much of a strain on your home's electrical system. But with a wallbox with dynamic load balancing, you can charge your electric vehicle without interruption, even when many house appliances are on. If the charging rate you have set is too high, the go-e Controller, for instance, will reduce it to a safe level.

2. Charging two or more electric vehicles simultaneously

Here’s the second scenario - you have two or more electric vehicles in your household and you're worried about how to charge them all at the same time. It also applies to businesses that offer EV charging to their employees. 

How to charge without causing a power outage? No worries. 

If each of the wallboxes supports static or even dynamic load balancing, you can charge multiple cars simultaneously without overloading the power grid.

So, whether your family has one or more electric vehicles or you just have a house with many appliances running at the same time, a dynamic load balancing will help charge your electric vehicles safely, efficiently, and worry-free.

Another way to charge in a more environmentally friendly and cost-effective way is to use a charger with integrated flexible electricity tariffs, such as our go-e Charger. In this case, the wallbox is able to track your electricity rates. Your car will charge during off-peak hours, which reduces the load on the grid and makes the power supply in your area more stable.

The Benefits of Having a Wallbox with Dynamic Load Balancing 

With this smart charging solution, your electric car's energy consumption is optimised to ensure that it charges at the most efficient rate based on the available capacity of your home's electrical grid. The result? Your power grid is never overloaded and the risk of blackouts is eliminated. With a wallbox with dynamic load balancing in the garage, you can keep the TV on and the power flowing, without ever having to worry about a blackout.


Dynamic load balancing is like when you share a cake with your friends. You know there's only one cake, so you can't hog it all to yourself. The difference is, when you finish the cake, that's it. But with the power grid, even when it's at max capacity, people might still try to use more power, which can cause a blackout because the grid just gives up.

Hoping your grid will be fine no matter the pressure is like walking on thin ice. If you feel anxious about a potential power cut when charging your electric car, our dynamic combo - go-e Charger and go-e Controller - will provide you with safe charging and peace of mind. Enjoy a seamless and stress-free charging experience that will leave you feeling charged up, quite literally.
